Construction innovation and collaboration facility readied for spring unveil
The Construction Scotland Innovation Centre has commenced work on an innovation and collaboration facility at Hamilton International Technology Park, Lanarkshire, for completion by the spring and a formal opening in the summer.

Open to any construction related employee or business the refurbishment project will involve alterations and refurbishment to an existing warehouse by contractor akp to form offices, and 30,000sq/ft of workshop space housing variety of plant equipment and machinery.

This will be dominated by a five-ton overhead gantry crane to allow businesses to develop new products, processes, systems and solutions with adjoining office space available for seminars, meetings and events.

Stephen Good, chief executive of Construction Scotland Innovation Centre said of the new facility: “It will provide a dynamic environment, away from the conventional building site, where the Scottish construction industry can innovate, take risks, explore and learn, safe in the knowledge that the activity here is protected from the perceived risks of innovating on live construction sites.”

Anderson Bell Christie, Armour, Currie & Brown and Scott Bennett are also contributing to the scheme which will sit alongside a new campus for The University of the West of Scotland.
